PolitiFact Wisconsin’s Truth-O-Meter

PolitiFact Wisconsin is a partnership of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and PolitiFact.com [the national site], a Pulitzer Prize-winning Web site of the St. Petersburg Times, to help you find the truth in politics.” Reporters and research staff from the newspapers and the publisher Congressional Quarterly research claims made by candidates, elected officials, political parties, interest groups, pundits, & talk show hosts, and then rate their truthfulness. Click the names of the people making claims for more information about them and other claims they’ve made that have been evaluated. You also can browse investigated claims by topic. I strongly suggest that you read the justification for the ratings and make your own judgments, however. A couple of times the research provided actually has convinced me to disagree with the “Truth-O-Meter” rating.
